Aaron Hernandez is due in court Friday on the murder charges against him. It's his first appearance of the year. 

Prosecutors are trying to get their hands on recordings of the jailhouse phone calls in which they say he discussed the killing of Odin Lloyd.

In those recordings prosecutors say the former NFL star used “coded messages” to talk with friends about the murder.

They also want the judge to order the Sheriff to turn over records of who has visited the ex-New England Patriot since he has been behind bars. 

Hernandez is due in Fall River Superior Court.
